31DC Day 20: Texture

Greetings all.

Quick post today, as I'm not really feeling it. It's totally freezing and I had to get up at 6am. Now I just want to get under the duvet and wake up in May!

Anyway, the nails. I like texture, but I don't have a whole lot of it. I've done flocking powder already (fail), I don't yet have any OPI Liquid Sand (it's on the list!), the Nails Inc Leather is saved for another day, so my options were a little limited. I guess I could have researched something unusual, but to be honest I couldn't be bothered! My caviar manicures need practice anyway.

This is a set from Accessorize, it's called Stardom and comes with a silver polish (that looks like it might this space!) and these turquoise, black and silver beads in a little tube. It cost me £4 and the beads are very tiny and seem to be good quality (they didn't bleed).

It's not perfect, but I like it. It felt really nice to touch, and to rub my nails together. I had to take it off though, because I am a picker and I would have got tiny little beads everywhere. It also reminds me of looking at something under a high powered microscope, like that is what the surface of your nails looks like with 1000x zoom or something. It's cool. I'll definitely be using it again.

This is my first attempt at caviar back in...November some time, I think. I liked the colours in this one, and the way they are slightly pearlised.

So there you go. Boring and predictable, but textured. Now go see what everyone else has done.


  1. I should have taken this opportunity to use the caviars I got for Christmas but didn't because I forgot about them... oops! Yours look great!

  2. i love the colors on this. i don't think your caviar manis need work, they look great!
